Dear Jody, Darla and family, May God comfort you as you mourn the your loss of your precious mother Dutchie. And may you find the strength to remember the wonderful life you mother lived, and celebrate her life as she would want you to.

Dear Darla and Jody and family,
My Christian sympathy is extended to each of you and your families. Your mother was a sweet, sweet, woman. I so enjoyed working with her while she was church clerk and I was the secretary. We had so much fun together. She always told me how much she loved her girls and Logan was the “apple of her eye”. She always had a SMILE and sometimes a joke. I will miss her. Just remember she is just away and we all will see her again someday. Until then your family and friends are here for you. Always take with you the memories she shared with each of you. God Bless You and Keep You In the Palm of His Hands and covet you with all our thoughts and prayers.

With deepest Christian Love and Sympathy,
Debbie Curnes

Aunt Dutchie, the card party nights we would have at grandma’s I always looked forward to those nights not ever knowing what your topic or joke of the night would be, but it never mattered because we always laughed so much when we were all together! When grandma passed you would always say I miss her so much she was such a great and caring person! I’m glad your not suffering and able to see grandma now because I’m sure she’s missed you as well! I love you Aunt Dutchie and will truly miss you! P.S could you give grandma a hug and kiss for me, and also tell her I’m going to be a grandma in June 2017! RIH
